Thanks for the advice. I'll try to keep an open mind.

I have a color monitor, but thanks I'll keep that in mind.
It's hard to teach an old (really old) dog new tricks, especially when
one's trying to remain productive. My goal is to find similar tools so I
can quickly transition to linux as a desktop and keep right on working.

all there was then. It sure was a lot easier than those damn punch cards.
